Strains, deformations and buckling in very thin torispherical pressure vessel ends
Campbell, T.D. (1975) Strains, deformations and buckling in very thin torispherical pressure vessel ends. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
An experimental study has been made of the behaviour of "very thin" torispherical ends subjected to internal pressure. The seventeen ends tested were full-size production ends made from stainless steel, with thickness to diameter ratios (te/Di) varying from 0.002 to 0.001. At each value of te/Di the knuckle radius (ri) and crown radius (Ri) were varied to cover the range of ends frequently used.
